In this recording the following prayers act as the dedication of the teachings:
“Ananda, this cluster of light atop the crown of the Buddha’s head, the secret gatha, Syi Dan Dwo Bwo Da La (Sheetata Patra), with its subtle, wonderful divisions and phrases, gives birth to all the Buddhas of the ten directions. Because the Thus Come Ones of the ten directions use this mantra-heart, they realize unsurpassed, proper, and all-pervading knowledge and enlightenment (Anuttarasamyaksambodhi).”
Homage to the Ayurvedic Chinese Medicine Lineage Masters:
Namo Arya Sheng-Nong - Bhaisajya Raja - Jivaka - Charaka - Nagarjuna - Jian Zhen Shr - Da Xin Fa Shr - Shen Kai Shang Ren Shr - Hsuan Hua Shang Ren Shr - Upasaka Vasant Lad Vagbhata Avalokiteshvara Namaha.
"From these Gurus and the Three Precious Gems I take safe direction
with myself clear as a Bodhisattva holding Compassion and Wisdom
I present you with offerings.
Upholding the teachings of Sutra and Mantra,
I restrain myself from a wide variety of faulty deeds.
Amassing within all constructive measures,
I benefit beings through the four types of giving - Dharma (wisdom-compassion teachings), Pala (protection),
Maitri (universal loving kindness), Artha (resources: food, clothing, shelter, medicines, money, relationships)." (6x)
Namo Shurangama Assembly of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas (3x)
O Deep and Wondrous Dharani (The Shurangama Mantra) - Unmoving (Akshobya Medicine Buddha) Honored One (Buddha).
Supreme Shurangama appears most rarely in the world. Extinguishing deluded thoughts (raga-vata-desire, dvesha-pitta-anger, moha-kapha-ignorance klesha-afflictions) from countless kalpas past (eons),
I needn't pass through eons 'till the Dharma Body's (Dharma Kaya - Enlightened Buddha Body) gained.
I wish (Bodhichitta) to now attain the Way ("The Buddha way is unsurpassed"); and as the Dharma King (Dharma Raja - a Buddha), I'll then return (as a Bodhisattva Mahasattva) to rescue beings more than Ganges sands.
This deep resolve (Bodhichitta) I offer to the myriad Buddhas' Lands (Buddha Kshetras - worlds), and thus endeavor to repay (filial respect) the Buddha's boundless grace (Nitya Punya).
I now request the Bhagavan (World-Honored One) to certify my Quest (the Ultimate Spiritual Quest for Enlightenment of Anuttara-Samyak-Sam-Bodhi); to enter first the evil world - the Five Turbidities (five obscurations or cloudinesses of mind -- 1. Kalpa or time Turbidity kalpa-kashaye hara; 2. View Turbidity or point of view drishti-kashaya hara; 3. Affliction Turbidity - greed-hatred-stupidity, vata desire, pitta anger, kapha ignorance - klesha-kashaye hara; 4. The living beings turbidity sattva-kashaye hara; and 5. The life turbidity - birth, old age, sickness and death - ayus-kashaye hara-ha).
If yet a single being's not accomplished Buddhahood, accordingly I also must renounce (Upeksha Chatura Brahma Vihara #4) Nirvana's Bliss.
O' Great in Courage (Conviction - Virya Paramita #4), Great in Power (Maha Bala Paramita #9), Great Compassionate (Maha Karuna Chatura Brahma Vihara #2) One (One = Oneness returns to Zero = Emptiness - Shunyata)!
I pray would now uncover and dispel my subt'lest doubts (Maha Prajna Paramita),
Thus cause me quickly to attain Supreme Enlightenment (Anuttarasamyaksambodhi),
And sit within the Bodhimandas (Way Places) of the Ten-Fold Realms ("The Ten Dharma Realms are not beyond a single thought.")
And even could (which it can…) the nature of Shunyata (empty space) melt away (shatter),
My Vajra-like (adamantine, indefatigable, unmoving Shurangama Akshobhya), Supreme Resolve (Bodhichitta) would still remain unmoved (Akshobhya).
From my gurus and the Three Precious Gems, I take safe direction. With myself clear as a Bodhisattva, holding vajra (compassion of fullness) and bell (wisdom of emptiness), I present you with offerings. Upholding the teachings of sutra and mantra, I restrain myself from a wide array of faulty deeds. Amassing within all constructive measures, I benefit beings through the four types of giving.
